Ok, so we will be playing the trivia game tonight at 9pm EST. I will be testing you on general chicken knowledge as well as aspects about BYC itself. I will be posting the questions one at a time in this thread. Each question will be appearing in my first post on the first page. That way you don't have to look through multiple pages for the each new question. Once a correct answer has been given, I will acknowledge the correct poster in the thread, & we will move on to the next question. So if you see me post....."Wildsky has the correct answer"(unlikely to happen of course), it's time for you to go back to page 1 & look for the next question. Feel free to google for an answer, or use the search functions on BYC. But remember, if you waste a lot of time doing this, you might miss the the next question. You might just want to guess sometimes. As the game goes on questions will increase in point value. So you can come from behind to win even in the last stages. So don't be a quiter...LOL Some rules: 1. Only 1 answer per question. If you post a second answer, I will only be looking at the first one. 2. Absolutely NO editing of posts for any reason. Edited posts will be disqualified for that question. Spelling is not critical, so I will take that into account with your answer. 3. Do Not post pictures with your answers. It will slow down the Dial-Up users. Posting a pic will disqualify you from the game entirely. 4. This rule is the most important.......HAVE FUN Decision of the judges is final. If you have any complaints, please right them out in triplicate, place them in a sealed envelope addressed to LCRT, & burn them outside exactly 1 hr after the game ends. I will be watching the sky for your smoke signals, & will respond to them via carrier pigeon within 5 business days. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Hi there and welcome to the BYC Trivia Challenge. Im LittleChickenRacingTeam, & Ill be your host for this first ever thrill packed, mind melting game of knowledge. You can all call me LCRT for short. Tonights game will test your general knowledge of chickens & also the BYC forum itself. Try not to take the game too serious, & remember .all answers are have been previously reviewed by NiftyChicken, so any complaints should be addressed to him & not your host. LEVEL 1 The format is simple. Ill post a question, & the first correct poster with the answer will get 1 point. This will apply to the first 5 questions. LEVEL 2 The questions will be harder, & 2 points will be awarded for a correct answer. There will be 5 questions at this level. LEVEL 3 I should be fairly drunk at this point in the game, so I will be awarding 3 points for a correct answer. There will be 3 questions at this level Level 4 Questions 14 & 15 will be worth 5 points each for the right answer. These will be tough but, the extra point value might just put you in the lead. _____________________________________________________________ Good Luck to everyone, & here is your first question We will start with an easy one.
